Fall Is In The Air!!!

With September comes a new excitement for me. I LOVE Fall!!! It is my favorite time of year. The days are cooling, the nights are getting chilly, apples are in season, the leaves are falling and some are changing color, and I get a new zest for life. I want to cook more, sew more, work in the yard more...just do more!!! I know it's not really fall until the The Great Pumpkin illuminates the darkness of our front yard, but it is coming, and I can taste it!!!
Happy September everyone.

You got me thinking about Fall and I felt it in the air this morning. It is definitely on its way. What is your favorite fall memory? and don't say your wedding.
Happy Fall!

Hmmmm, I don't know if I have one favorite fall memory, but one that ranks right up there would be putting up the Pumpkin light every year. I always look forward to that, and when we do it, I know it signifies the beginning of the nesting part of the year for me!!

I love everything about Fall...the clothes, football games, pumpkind desserts, as well as apple desserts. Like you, I also love to work in the yard, sew, and bake bread when cooler weather hits.

Unfortunately, it's still 105 here in Arizona and even the nights are still in the 90's. It certainly doesn't feel like Fall here.

Cute new layout out Mom! Very fall'ish. I like it. I too love fall. I am ready for some cooler days and much cooler nights. I was just thinking how I can't wait to have my first cup of chai tea (from my Trader Joe's mix) on a cold night.

I also really want to wear a sweatshirt, although I am afraid that when I wear one while pregnant I will look like a giant pumpkin myself.

PS- I keep forgetting to tell you, but your tampon story...very funny!

One of my favorite memories was our nature hike when we took our clippers and bags and collected all the fall foilage for our tables. Did we get some funny looks or what?

Kris said...

OMG, yes!!! That was funny! Soon it will be time to do that again!!!!

As a kid, it was always summer that did that for me. But as an adult, I feel the same about fall. I love EVERYTHING about it. I just wish it felt like fall here in texas....

THere was nothing better than fall in Ohio. That's when I fell in love with fall.
